This year’s EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival kicks off earlier than ever on July 14, 2022. The event runs through November 19, 2022, with a celebration of food and wine from six continents taking over nearly every area of this Disney Park.
While outdoor kitchens might be the focal point of the festival, another popular event is the Eat to the Beat Concert Series, which is returning to EPCOT for the first time since 2019.
This year’s concert lineup features some returning bands and performers like Baha Men, Hanson, Boyz II Men, Tiffany, and more, along with a number of new acts, and a couple of artists that will be announced at a later date.
Every concert is free to attend (or rather, is included with your theme park admission to EPCOT), however, you may not be able to score a seat for each one unless you opt to purchase a dining package.
Eat to the Beat dining packages allow Guests to enjoy lunch or dinner at a table service restaurant in the park for an added fee, with earlier access into the America Gardens Theatre for the day’s concert. A number of restaurants around the park are available for options, with Guests able to choose between a pre-fixe menu or an added fee on top of the cost of a buffet.
When you pay for your meal, a Cast Member will provide you with tickets that give you earlier access to the theatre ahead of those waiting in the standby line so you can have plenty of time to grab your seats and enjoy the show!
Eat to the Beat dining packages at the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival vary in price by the location, and reservations are available for the packages now!
